How Do You Buy Points?
You can buy points on NCAA Football, NFL, and any basketball point spreads straight from your Bet Slip.
Buying points moves the point spread to either:
 Give away less points with the favorite.
 Get more points with the underdog.
For NFL and NCAA Football, the cost of buying half a point depends on the point you are buying onto (i.e., 3, 7 or other) and whether the odds are standard (110) or offstandard (e.g., 120). There is no such premium in Basketball.
In NFL and NCAA Football:
You can buy half a point (1/2) onto a flat number only (e.g., from +4.5 to +5 or from 4.5 to 4).
In Basketball:
You can buy up to one and a half points (1/2, 1, 1 ½) from any whole or half number (e.g., from +4.5 up to +6 or from 5 down to 3.5).
How to Buy Points
1. On the Bet Slip, under the details of your bet, click the drop down arrow in the ‘Buy Points!’ box to select how many points you’d like to buy.
2. Select the number of points you wish to buy from the menu.
3. The point spread and odds for each bet are automatically recalculated for you, and your total Risk and Win amounts are updated at the bottom of the Bet Slip.
Rules for Buying Points
1. Wagers must be placed on the outcome of a single event or game, and all standard rules apply.
2. If the team you bet on is the favorite, they must cover the updated point spread; conversely, if you’ve taken the dog – they must lose by no more than the current spread or win outright.
3. The maximum number of points you can buy is ½ point on Football and up to 1½ points on Basketball.
The COST OF BUYING POINTS
Standard odds
With standard odds, the cost of buying each half a point is an additional $0.10, added to the juice or price. For example, if you buy ½ point on an NFL line that is originally 110, the new price will be 120. However, there are certain exceptions when buying points for NFL and NCAA Football:
 You can buy half a point onto a spread of 3 (from +2.5 to +3 or from 3.5 to 3); it will cost an additional $0.25 (added to the juice or price) for NFL point spreads and an additional $0.15 for NCAA Football point spreads.
 You can buy half a point onto a spread of 7 (from +6.5 to +7 or from 7.5 to 7); it will cost an additional $0.15 (added to the juice or price), for NFL point spreads. The additional cost remains at $0.10 for NCAA Football.
Let’s look at a couple of examples:
 Suppose the New York Jets are 5.5point underdogs (+5.5). To move the spread to +6 points, you need to buy half a point. The cost of doing so is an additional $0.10 , which means that you must now bet $120 instead of $110 to generate a profit of $100.
 This time, let’s suppose the New York Jets are 2.5point underdogs (+2.5). To move the spread to +3 points, you need to buy half a point again. Now, because it’s an NFL game, the cost of doing so is an additional $0.25. You must now bet $135 to make a profit of $100.
 Similarly, if the Wisconsin Badgers are 3.5point favourites (3.5), you can buy half a point to move the point spread to 3 points. This time, because it’s an NCAA Football game, the cost of doing so is an additional $0.15. You must now bet $125 to make a profit of $100.
Offstandard Odds:
With offstandard odds, the cost of buying each half a point will depend on whether the odds are greater than or less than 110 (standard odds). The same exceptions for the NFL and NCAA Football outlined above apply. As an example:
 If the odds are positive or greater than 110 (e.g., 105; even; +145), a charge is applied to bring the odds to 110 before the $0.10 is applied (or $0.25/$0.15 if you’re buying onto a spread of 3 or 7 with NFL and NCAA Football).
 If the odds are less than 110 (e.g., 115 or 165), the charge of $0.10 is applied directly (or $ 0.25/$0.15 if you’re buying on a spread of 3 or 7 with NFL and NCAA Football).
